What a welcomed surprise when visiting Nymans for the first time, it is simply beautiful. Perfect for an hour or so or a whole day, the gardens and house are lovely and it is a great place to relax and enjoy a leisurely stroll. Finish off with a drink and cake at the cafe. Even better with National Trust membership... More

We spent a lovely afternoon here today. The house and gardens lovely as was the pavilion cafe. My only grievance was there us not enough toilet facilities on site. There was the odd 1 , literally dotted around the cafe , albeit they were not very clean. As the summer rush is heading towards the NT house I really think... More

Really nice to wander round, the grounds are huge and there's a lot to see. Garden centre sells lots of nice, unique projects like carved wooden statues and has the standard National Trust cafe with a good selection of cake.

We visited here as we are members of the national trust. The fresh cakes, pastries and soup of the day are to be recommended after a brisk walk around the lovely gardens,

There's much to say about Nymans. Like most National Trust carparks it would help greatly if they managed to put 'guidelines' in the car park to encourage people to park responsibly, thus using the space more efficiently. We arrived 15 minutes after opening and there was already a queue to get in , mainly caused by not having enough people... More

Considering the popularity of Nymans - at which attendance must have increased since the introduction of disproportionate parking charges at nearby Wakehurst Place - I am surprised that more has not been done to make Nymans more accessible to people with mobility issues. With regard to accessibility at Nymans a number of issues come to mind as follows: (1) Only... More

We visit a lot of national trust places in Sussex and this isn't our favourite. The house is nice-but only a few rooms to see as is a burnt shell. The gardens are pretty, just much smaller than other trust places nearby.

A great example of British Gardens, as well as the usual shops and tea rooms. But...if the sun's shining, be prepared to be turned away from the car park, as it fills up fast.

This is not a cheap day out. Fortunately, we are NT members, so it didn't cost us to get in, but £22 for a couple of OAPs? That seems a bit steep. We had a stroll round the gardens first, beforelunch in the cafe. Plenty of seating, including outdoors, but the space where you order your food was cramped. The... More

With it's new leadership & policies the NT has become more corporate & political with desperate attempts to be more PC by targeting those within minority demographics. Nymans like many other NT gardens can sometimes resemble a horticultural crèche or al fresco games arcade an image a million miles away from the original concept of preserving beautiful gardens & houses...
